Here I am! No, I didn’t fall off into oblivion, although I feel like it sometimes. I’m still here and still kicking and thinking and dreaming about fabric and quilting and all the beautiful things I can make. I wanted to breathe some new life into my Etsy Shop, Ciao Bella Solids by offering to let a few friends pick out their very own Bella Bundles! I was so incredibly thrilled when my friends Danielle, Erin and Jen agreed to help me out and even create something and write a blog post about it in a very short turn around! So here is a little bit about these lovely bloggers who will be sharing their projects with you this month (plus me). Oh and make sure that you visit their blogs because each one will be giving away a fat quarter bundle of their fabric!!
First is Danielle of Nacho Mama’s Quilt. Danielle and I have been buds for a few years, ever since we both joined the San Antonio Modern Quilt Guild and ended on the guild board together. We always seem to have similar thoughts about quilting and the stuff going on in the Modern Quilting world. She’s a very talented Long Arm quilter and I’m so fortunate to have her as a friend. She chose an awesome bundle of neutrals and greens, but you don’t have to take my word for it. Hop over there to Danielle’s blog and take a look! Also you can stop by her Facebook page to say hi.
Next up is a sweet and creative young woman named Erin Schlosser. She joined the San Antonio Modern Quilt Guild about a month after I moved to Houston but by the miracle that is the Internet I’ve been able to keep up with her and we’ve become friends. (We totally rocked out at the Quiltcon 80′s party!) I was so excited when I saw Erin’s selection for her bundle because it’s bright and fun and…that’s all I’m going to tell you about it, you’ll have to check her blog on April 22 for her post! (Don’t worry, I’m going to post about mine on April 15 to bridge you over to the next week!) And take a minute to go check out Erin’s Facebook page as well!
We’ll wrap up the month with a post by Jen Eskridge of ReannaLily Designs. Jen is a super sweet and talented pattern design and author! I met her at quilt market a couple of years ago when she still lived in New Orleans and later was so thrilled to find out she was moving to San Antonio!! She also joined the SAMQG after I moved to Houston, but being the sweetie that she is, she agreed to create a bundle for my blog hop! I am so excited about her bundle too because, well, because I just love to see all the combinations of just solid fabrics that can be made from my inventory! And I love to see what everyone can create with them. Jen has a Facebook page if you want to follow her over there. Check for Jen’s post on April 29th.
Blogger bundles will be available in my shop and orders will be filled as soon as possible. I am going on a quilt retreat this weekend, so orders during that time will be filled the next week. Remember, each blogger will be giving away a bundle of their fabric on the week of their post so be sure to check each week for a chance to win! Here is the schedule one more time:
April 9 Nacho Mama’s Quilt
April 15 Urban Stitches (me)
April 22 Schlosser Designs
April 29 ReannaLily Designs
Happy Stitches and Happy Hopping!
